What we focus on is what we get to the exclusion of everything else.

What we focus on is what we will find evidence of, to the exclusion of everything else.

Often we do not realise how big the above statements are. Think about it.

Our reality is only what we perceive and we only perceive what we focus on (see image in this posting). Successful people seems to always find solutions, then again, they are focus on solutions and their realities are full of solutions. On the other hand, some people seems to be always in trouble. This problem comes up, then the other one and they never seem to get a break. They focus on problems, so the keep finding more problems.

So, we can always improve our life by focusing on the things we want. On this line, positive thinking will always boost our effort to get what we want, to become what we want.

It does sound easier than done. Granted! Then again, it is easy to start and it is just matter of keep working at it until you master it. One step you can do to get you going in the direction of positive thinking is to phrase everything in a positive statement. Some examples:

  • Positive thinking statement: Yes, I can do. It may take some time and hard work, but I will complete it. (notice the commitment, the certainty that it will be done)
  • Positive thinking: Every difficulty is an opportunity
  • Negative thinking statement: It is quite difficult and it involves a lot of hard work. I will try to do it. (notice the lack of commitment, the statement is almost saying “it is not possible” and opens the path for not doing it)
  • Negative thinking: Every opportunity has a “But…” (going into this is too hard to do)

Give it a try, commit to practice this approach for a month and experience how much this can impact your own life.

My questions to you are:

  1. What are you currently focusing on?
  2. What is what you would like to focus on?
  3. Are you in sync between what you currently are and what you want to be?

Let us know what you think.
